What is the Pain Programme?
This is a simple, effective programme that will show you how to reduce your pain and the other challenging aspects of living with a chronic pelvic pain condition.
You’ll go through a step-by-step online programme over eight weeks which will teach you practical techniques. These have been distilled into simple, structured stages from the complex science about reducing pain, the need to go to the toilet urgently and frequently, and the stress and anxiety that comes with these conditions.
You’ll discover which techniques and adaptations work best for you as an individual, and develop an ability to control and reduce your symptoms.
Who is it for?
Anyone struggling with chronic pelvic pain or bladder pain urge or frequency.
What support will there be?
There is support available Monday to Friday via the help desk. You’ll be part of a compassionate Facebook community.

What’s in it for me?
This is an opportunity to improve your quality of life and reduce pain and other symptoms.
